Donnie McClurkin & Kirk Franklin - Ooh Child


I found this newer version, powerful, in my opinion!


Ooh child things are gonna get easier
Ooh child things will get brighter
Ooh child things are gonna get easier
Ooh child things will get brighter

VERSE 1
some day yes we'll put it together and we'll get all down some day yes
when the world is much brighter some day
yes we'll walk in the rays of the beautiful sun
some day when the world is much brighter

CHORUS
Ooh child things are gonna get easier just you wait
and see things will get brighter
oh my baby boy things are gonna get easier baby girl things will get brighter

VERSE 2
Some day yes we'll put it together and we'll get all down some day yes
when the world is much brighter some day
yes we'll walk in the rays of the beautiful sun
some day when the world is much brighter

Vamp
if you're tired of the crying com'on(com'on)
if you're tired of people dying com'on(com'on)
if you're tired of the fighting com'on(com'on)

Wednesday Words: Strength

We don't always have to be strong. Sometimes, our strength is expressed in being vulnerable. Sometimes, we need to fall apart to regroup and stay on track.

We all have days when we cannot push any harder, cannot hold back self-doubt, cannot stop focusing on fear, cannot be strong.

There are days when we cannot focus on being responsible. Occasionally we don't want to get out of our pajamas. Sometimes, we cry in front of people. We expose our tiredness, irritability, or anger.

Those days are okay. They are just okay.

Part of taking care of ourselves means we give ourselves permission to "fall apart" when we need to. We do not have to be perpetual towers of strength. We are strong. We have proven that. Our strength will continue if we allow ourselves the courage to feel scared, weak, and vulnerable when we need to experience those feelings.

Today, God, help me to know that it is okay to allow myself to be human. Help me not to feel guilty or punish myself when I need to "fall apart."

On My Way

I am on my way, a slow path & baby steps within my journey.......




"...everybody plays this one right, everybody gets a fresh, hot latte and a scone..."

Oh what a beautiful night
Couldn't get any clearer
Yeah what a wonderful sight
My old life in the rear view mirror

Hey now I'm travelin' light
Duffel bag and a six string
Yeah but it feels so right
To hear the bells of freedom ring

Gotta get away from
The same old same
Let a new day come
Start over again

Hey I was stuck in a grind
Little fish in a little pond
If I had a criminal mind
I'd have got myself a gun

Had to get away from
The ball and chain
Let a new day come
Or start goin' insane

I'm on my way
Don't know to where
But I'm gonna get there

On my way
Look at the world
With my brand new eyes

I can't believe I feel so high
I'm on my way tonight

Hey I was going to seed
Spreading out like a corn field
I had so much denial to feed
I was full of nothing real

I had to get away from
My old routine
Let a new day come
Start over again

I'm on my way
I don't know to where
But I'm gonna get there

On my way
Look at the world
Through my brand new eyes

I can't believe I get to feel
So good
So high tonight

Starting tonight
There will be
A revival
In my world

Turn on the lights
And you'll see
This one man band
Is now a symphony

And the sun
Is gonna shine
Like a summer time
That has no end

And the love
I will find
I have no doubt
That it will be mine
The love I find
Will all be mine

I had to get away while
I could still be saved
Let a new day come
Stop digging my grave

On my way...
I have faith
The road up ahead
Gonna get much easier

On my way
Look at me now
With a brand new life

I can't believe I feel so high
I'm on my way tonight

"...'scuse me, waitress, latte's and scones for everybody!..."

Styx - Crystal Ball Live 1996

Who wouldn't like to know........this song just came to me.......Imagine.......



I used to like to walk the straight and narrow line.
I used to think everything was fine.
Sometimes I'd sit and gaze for days through sleepless dreams,
All alone and trapped in time.
All alone and trapped in time.
I wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me?
Or am I even in it's mind at all?
Perhaps I'll get a chance to look ahead and see.
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball.
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball.
But tell me, tell me where I'm going,
I don't know where I've been,
Tell me, tell me, wont you tell me
And then tell me again.
My heart is breaking,
My body's aching,
And I don't know where to go.
So tell me, tell me, wont you tell me
I just gotta know.
Crystal Ball
There's so many things I need to know
Crystal Ball
There's so many things I've gotta know
Crystal Ball
Wont you tell me please before I go.
Crystal Ball

Support system needed.....



I need//want motivation again

I need//want the energy again

I need//want the tiredness to go away

I need//want the aches & pains to go away

I am going in circles...if I could just didn't have the neck & back pain & then I could get up & move. When I do feel good enough to move then the ache & pains return, especially the horrible headaches.....a vicious circle....

So there I was on facebook, and a high school friend started her blog of her journey, there t is my eyes are open.

I know for me, no scale.
I know for me, seeing the clothes fit differently is my goal.

GOAL: Cruise next yr @ this time w/a bunch of friends.

BIGGER GOAL: My son's future wedding. To look & feel amazing on his day, for him. (yes for me, just a little)

So here start's it, no number's for the outside world, but every Monday nite, well, maybe Monday am......I will let you all know....


To be in balance, again.............a dream........a goal...........
